How 3.30?

@Vijay patel.

h2 = 2*20

h square = 40.

How come h = 3.3?

h2 = 2*20

h square = 40.

How come h = 3.3?

For slopes of 10 percent or less, the correction to be applied to L for a difference d in elevation between tape ends, or for a horizontal offset d between tape ends, may be computed from,

Cs=(h^2)/(2L).

For a slope greater than 10 percent, Cs may be determined from,

Cs={(h^2)/(2L)}+{(h^4)/8(L^3)}.

Cs=(h^2)/(2L).

For a slope greater than 10 percent, Cs may be determined from,

Cs={(h^2)/(2L)}+{(h^4)/8(L^3)}.

If we use any value lesser than 3 and not greater than 3, then answer for slope correction either using the complete formula given above or by eliminating the second term, we will get the same answer. Thus it means that the second term can be eliminated the right answer is 3 and distance kept as 20m.

Would you please explain the calculations! Why are you taken that h2/2l=1?

Second term neglect and l = 20.

So h2 = 2L.

h2 = 2*20.

h = 3.3m.

Near equal to 3m.

So h2 = 2L.

h2 = 2*20.

h = 3.3m.

Near equal to 3m.
